  1. Montreal Suburb, Qc, Canada Sunmountain C-130 and H2NO, Using a modified Columbia cooler that I attach to my Sunmountain V1 pushcart. Rarely ride. Should hold 2 X 1 L bottles of juice. My cooler holds 2 X 1 L of square Garden Cocktail type perfectly. 14 full length dividers, good decent storage. Waterproofing/resistant is a plus, not a must. Not eligible outside US, I know. But this is what I have and look for in a Golf Bag.
  2. PRO: WRX has a top notch, heavy duty Rules & Etiquette thread/forum What brings me here? Got bored with the rest of it.
  3. LOL, Welcome to the MGS Forum (2016)? Why LOL, you ask? It brings me back to when I joined another Forum, and I shared a long and thought out response to a thread that was already 3 years old...And obviously asleep. If you look at the date in the last reply, you will see 2012, 4 years before you came on board. Back then, I bought a Ping Craz-E, IWI Series putter. But I hated the smallish stock WINN grip. Before I replaced it with a LAMKIN Jumbo, I checked the swing weight. It stood at F7. With a much heavier grip, I could'nt feel the head anymore. I bought the optional weight kit, and changed the stock 2 X 12 gr inserts to the 2 X 20 gr. I played around with different combinations of interchangable inserts, but I did not like the feel. It's still in my bag and not going anywhere anytime soon.
  4. Copy/Paste of IMHO, the best line of Putters, Ping has ever created. Light years ahead of it's time. The discontinued Ping IWI Series. The weight kit comes with 2 X 20 gr and 2 X 28 gr Tungsten weights. The Putter is fitted with 2 X 12 gr weights. On FleaBay, scammers sell kits of 4 X 12 gr inserts, for a small fortune. I cherish my Ping, IWI Series, Craz-E Putter, with the (proper) weight kit.

  6. Two weeks ago, I couldn't see the grass in my backyard. Everything is closed and it will stay that way for a while, I'm affraid. Putting in my carpeted basement. Use my Dr Warren's Swing Fan outside. Can't use the wedges, the grass is too wet and muddy. Bought a bike at Costco last week, it's a Northrock hybrid CTM. It comes with quick release front and rear wheels and seat post. I thief proofed it. It seems that I will be cycling for a while.
  7. That I believe...Been there, seen it. LOL
  8. Been here only a few days. Been somewhere else since 2008 until a member there suggested MGS, if I wanted to talk Golf and R-E-L-A-X while I'm at it. I have a rare health condition... I am allergic to hypocrisy. I get a kick out of people bragging, I actually envy what I call "the better people", (without malice) but I have an aversion to Sneaky Two Faced. Thank you BIGSTU Glad to see you here Tolmij
  9. When I bought my first computer, I had also caught the Chronic Golf Bug, and winter was around the corner. I found a Golf Forum on line and they asked for a screen name. It caught me by surprise and started looking around while thinking. I bought my comp. from MDG Electronics. That was the easy part. The empty boxes were still laying around the basement. I didn't want to give the impression that I am a boxer since I'd been into Karate most of my life. (mdgboxes) I also didn't want to be a smarta$$ by adding 3 X, so I added two. There you have it: mdgboxx
  10. Been somewhere else since 2008, until a member on there pointed me in this direction. Happy to be here Happy Birthday MSG
  11. And THAT, right there, is the beauty of playing a different kind of Golf. The secret is to never use your wedge. It's much safer to punch an 8 iron or more. Think of it more like bowling...Especially par 3s Bouncing off a frozen water hazard is a classic. A no-insert putter is also the ultimate tool. I would also keep 4 balls in my inside pocket and rotate on every hole. Dunlop SoLo and Precept Lady were the best. I contacted PING about sub-zero temps, and here is what they replied: If you ever loose a Fine Tuning Insert in your PING club, for whatever reason, we will replace it (FTI) at no cost to you whatsoever. I was playing S-58 irons at the time. My winter driver was a Srixon W-506 and the Srixon FWs are still in the bag to this day.
  12. At the *International 2000* they would close after the first "permanent" snowfall, which is around mid/late December and then, in mid March, they will bring a snowblower for the fairways and a plow for the greens. The course is frozen solid, so, no damage.
  13. To those who asked how or why, I would reply: "It's a different kind of Golf" Aside from being a lunatic, what else could I answer?
  14. I have played in -4 F temps with 10-15 mph wind gusts. I live on the Montreal South-Shore. I was a member at the International 2000 GC, in Lacolle, Qc. It prides itself of being the first to open and the last to close in Quebec. It is located 3 miles from the Champlain US border crossing. In 2007, I played my last 36 holes on Jan. 7th, 2008. I was back on the course on March 16....I was 62 yrs/o at the time.
  15. LOL, I have seen close to 60 on a 9 hole course. I have seen a legit 67 when I caddied for our club pro in a tournament. I have never been lower than 8 hdc.
  16. I have a HiO to my credit. I like saying: If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all If it wasn't for TV, I'd never see a score of 60.
  17. Put lipstick on a Pig---It's still a Pig
